Associated Press

LYON, France (AP) — Hundreds of marchers in European cities have protested in support of protesters in Iran. Hundreds of people marched Sunday in the French city of Lyon to honor an Iranian Kurdish man who took his own life in a desperate act of anguish over the nationwide protests in Iran. They also carried placards that read “stop executions in Iran” and other slogans. Hundreds of protesters also gathered in Rome and London. Demonstrators outside the Iranian Embassy in Rome chanted “killers!” and stacked up boxes outside its closed doors containing signed petitions. Protesters in London waved Iran’s pre-revolutionary flag as they marched to Trafalgar Square. They chanted “woman, life, freedom.” That’s a slogan of the Iranian movement.
